Participating U.S. Navy ships included Independence-variant littoral combat ship, USS Kansas City (LCS 22) and Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, USS John S. McCain (DDG 56). The crews opened up their ships for public tours, explored the Portland sights, took part in various community events and volunteer activities.

Portland Fleet Week is a time-honored celebration of the sea services and provides an opportunity for the citizens of Oregon to meet sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen, as well as witness firsthand the latest capabilities of today’s maritime services.
